Summer Kindness | Dragonfly Stamp

Hi there! Wow it’s another scorching hot day here in the UK! So perfect for more gorgeous summer inspiration… Jane Tyrrell has a beautiful card to share with you featuring our new dragonfly stamp…



Happy summer! Yes we have enjoyed our longest day too and the long summers days loom ahead. I live very near the River Wandle as it winds its way back up to London and I delight in my walks along it.

As I walked along yesterday I saw a flash of colour in the undergrowth


I only had my phone with me (very unusal for me!) but I managed to snap a very summery visitor, a shimmery dragonfly.




This leads in perfectly to my latest design team project for Visible Image and I am sharing another sample I made using the brand new stamp release which is released tomorrow!


I made a summery card using the lovely dragonfly from the Summer Wings set:


summer stamps | butterfly | dragonfly | line drawings


I decided to get out my alcohol inks and made a summery background





I cut it down for a 7X5″ card


I stamped all the images onto acetate which I had also added alcohol ink to (I will use the butterflies for another project).



I also gold embossed some of them (sorry no photos!) I decided to use just the wings of the gold embossed acetate dragonfly and gold embossed another on some inky mop up card. I used the 2 together to make a real statement dragonfly.



This was just right for my alcohol ink background.


I also decided to use one of the fab sentiments from the new Equality, Hope and Love stamp set

equality | hope| love | sentiment stamps | definitions



Here is my finished card.

kindness sentiment stamp | dragonfly | alcohol inks



with some close ups..







and one last shot:


dragonfly stamp | acetate | embossing | alchohol inks


I have LOTS more samples to share over the coming weeks and do keep an eye out on social media where mine and my teamies samples are being shared.


Thanks so much for stopping by.


Bye for now,

Jane x

Summer Wings | Dragonfly Stamp

Hello and Happy Friday to you! We have stempelfrida here on the blog today with a fabulous summer card featuring the dragonfly stamp from our NEW ‘Summer Wings’ set…


Hello, dears!

I have brought my Visible Image day earlier, because yay, a new release of Visible Image is here! It consists of six new stamp sets and they are once again very different from the previous ones. Have you looked yet? Already now you can pre-order the stamps, they will be delivered at the end of this month. As always I was allowed to play with some of them. Today I used the set with the dragonfly called “Summer wings”.


dragonfly stamp | mixed media card | acrylic paint | geometric flowers


The background for my card is a gelli plate print. Besides blue/aqua tones I also used gold, which you will also find on other elements like the flowers and the dragonfly. The print is not very sophisticated technique wise. The ovals are made by just rolling a spot of paint with the brayer the longer lines are made with wood sticks. 



I stamped the dragonfly with Versamark and embossed it with a powder consisting of different colours of the ocean. I then coloured it with Twinkling H2Os. Do you know those? I didn´t use them for ages. They are water colours with lots of shimmer and give a wonderful glittery look. I found that perfect for the dragonfly. I bent the wings and the body a bit.



The flowers are also stamped with Versamark and then embossed in gold. They are from an older set called “Visometry” and are actually geometric elements. They go wonderfully with the dragonfly, have you noticed? The structures on the wings reflect the flowers. Or vice versa. Then I coloured the flowers with watercolour.



       




Supplies


Stamps:


butterfly | dragonfly | stamps | line drawings



geometric stamps | spirals | flowers



here for you | stronger than you think | sentiment stamps
 


Stamp pads: Versamark; Distress Oxides mermaid lagoon
Embossing powder: Kartenkunst gold, Ozean
Twinkling H2O Guatemalian Green, Navajo Pearl, Bolivian Blue, Mustard Green, Iridescent gold
Acrylic paint 
Water colour: Schmincke HORADAM 







What a fabulous summer card! We love your background for these stamps and the touches of gold against the blues. Thank you stempelfrida ♡

Brighten The World

Hi!!! We have Jane Tyrrell up on the blog next with a stunning canvas that will really make you smile…


Now that spring seems to have finally arrived I decided to make a sunny canvas for my weekly design team inspiration for Visible Image stamps.

I used 2 stamp sets that I have not inked up for some time. It was time to ink up the brilliant

dragonfly stamp from the Live in the Moment  stamp set:



and use it with the awesome Your Vivid Colours sentiment



I also stamped and fussy cut out some flowers from the Imperfection is Beauty set.



I made a distress ink background using spring coloured distress inks on watercolour paper



I masked the stamp into 2 halves so that I could put my dragonfly in between the words and made a stalk for my flowers using one of the stamps from the Organics stamp set





I stamped my dragonfly on a scrap of alcohol ink mop up card and fussy cut him out. I added Glossy Accents for some shine.



Here is my completed canvas…




and a couple of close ups..




Thanks so much for stopping by.

Enjoy the warming sunshine.


Back soon!


Bye for now,
Jane x

Her Spirit Was Strong..

Good Evening! If you love texture and shimmer you will adore Elisa’s inspiration here on the blog today…


Hi everyone,

Elisa here with my latest mixed media project for you.




A mixed media tag featuring a couple of Visible Image’s background stamps:


the new awesome Fibonacci




and De-Stressed




To create the tag, I started with a heavy base chipboard tag from 2Crafty Chipboard, perfect substrate for a mixed media tag. Next came a background of gesso’d old book paper, torn and distressed.


I then stamped my feature dragon flies, hand coloured with a bit of the gorgeous teal dylusions shimmer spray, and then fussy cut them out and 3d mounted them over my background.


Live In The Moment




I loved using the Cosmic Skies Stencil to create a small and subtle amount of texture for my background. I used a white modelling paste as I find that it doesn’t soak up colour as much as other mediums leaving you with bright colour!


Cosmic Skies stencil






Close ups for the finer details –

 

 

 


That’s it from me today, make sure you leave me some love!
Elisa xx




Wow that turquoise is stunning! Love how you used the stencil.. thanks Elisa! ♡

Dream.. Inspire.. Imagine

Hello and Happy Easter! We hope you are enjoying a break from routine, and spending time with your favourite people. We are taking a couple of days off, enjoying some family time (and eating a little bit too much chocolate!), before the madness of the Ally Pally craft show preparation starts on Tuesday!!

Lanette Erickson has another gorgeous tag to share with you today…


Hello All!


Today it is my turn to share & hopefully inspire you here on the Visible Image Blog, and I just had to create something with this Dragonfly. So, I decided that I would create a layered tag with him as the star of the show!





Products Used: Visible Image Stamp Sets- Imagine Dream Inspire, De-Stressed, Ink Splats & Live in the Moment. Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays- Rusty Lantern Lime, Bells of Ireland Green, Green with Envy Green & Luminous Yellow. Art Anthology Sorbet- Cayman & Tink. Ranger- Electric Lime & Caribbean Coast Ink Pads. Versa Mark Black Ink. White Uniball pen. Ranger Glossy Accents. Misc Ribbon. Prima- Watercolor Paper. Wafer-Thin Umbrella Dies.



     



Now lets take a close look at my tag….



I just love the Dragonfly in the ” Live in the Moment Stamp Set” he is absolutely beautiful! So I had to fussy cut him to really make him POP. I also stamped directly on the tag too.



Here you get better look at the titles that from the “Dream Inspire Imagine Stamp Set” While I love the definitions in this set, I really only wanted the bold titles for this tag. So with just a bit of selective inking I had my bold words.



If you look closely, you will see there really is a lot going on in the background of my tag. I used both the De-Stressed & Ink Splats Background Stamp Sets.



     



Now make sure you stop by and join the fun over in our Visible Image Facebook group!


Thank you so much for stopping by today!
I hope that I have inspired you in some way!




Thank you Lanette.. your tags are always stunning! ♡

Beautiful Dragonfly

Hello! We are back with more gorgeous inspiration this evening. Veerle Moreels is here with a beautiful card and a not one but two great videos too…


When I saw the newly released Visible Image ‘Family Definition’ stamps my head went over the top… All those beautiful words just waiting to be used on their own too. So this immediately popped in my head: would I be able to cut them up so stamping just one word became easier? Guess what…
( and I have it in video for you ^.^)



That means a lot of beautiful words to play with now they are all cut up ^.^


Now in that video I didn’t show how I made the background and there’s a reason for that. I had this happy accident happening when I started out this project ^.^



Stamps used:


Father Definition




Live in the Moment




Thank you Veerle.. wonderful videos, we could watch you creating water colour backgrounds all day! ♡


Of course our family definition stamps are fabulous stamped as they come too.. or you can mask off parts with tape too! So many possibilities…

You’ll find more stunning projects over on Veerle’s blog.

Summer Moments

Hi! We have some gorgeous summery inspiration from Corrie Herriman here on the blog today…


Hello everyone,

Today I have a tag to share for Visible Image. I made this way back early August as I am away in sunny (one hopes) Brighton at the moment!


 

After cutting a tag out of watercolour paper I dunked it into two of the new Distress Oxide colours; wild honey and twisted citron. Once I was happy with the background I stamped it with one of the flowers of the ‘Imperfection is Beauty’ stamp set, using the same inks. While the ink was still wet I sprinkled clear embossing powder over it and heat embossed it.

 

 

I then added some white splatters.

 

 

I then stamped the sentiment and the dragonflies from the ‘Live in the Moment’ set. I clear embossed the sentiment also. The wings were then stamped again on book paper and adhered over the ones already on the tag. A ribbon and some doodling around the edges finished it off !


I used the following stamps:


Live in the Moment




Imperfection is Beauty


 

Thank you for stopping by today !
Corrie



Loving that background! Thanks Corrie!

Make Every Moment Count

Hi there! Hope Monday has been gentle on you! We have another week full of wonderful projects to come here on the blog. We are kicking off the week with some challenge inspiration from Veerle Moreels…

 

It’s the start of a new month so there’s a new monthly challenge over in the Visible Image Facebook group. And this month’s challenge theme is: A splash of color.


Now you all know me…my favorite color is black but just a splash of black … I didn’t want to do that so I chose to make my background black and of course I had a beautiful set of words chosen to match this challenge.




Now for my splash of color I went for… the beautiful colors on the wings of a dragonfly. I stamped the dragonfly on two layers of 300 gr. watercolor paper. Of course I used my watercolors to color him in and then I’ve cut it out using an exacto knife.  By using two layers of watercolor paper I created some dimension.



 

And it was hard to catch it on photo but my wings have a subtle layers of glitter. I had an extra light on it to try and catch it here…




And here it is… my splash of color. Had to add some black splashes too ^.^




We are looking forward to seeing all of your colored splashes… so don’t hesitate to let yourself go and come on over to the group to share your projects and color our days ^.^

 

Stamps used:


Live in the Moment




Ink splats

Free as a Dragonfly

Hi there! We are back with more stunning inspiration this evening here on the blog.

Teresa Morgan is here with a brand new project…



Hello and welcome to another Thursday inspiration post from me for Visible Image.

I have used stamps from three sets to decorate my gatefold card today.



My background is Distress Inks, smooshed on a craft mat. I then splattered some water drops and blotted to create a faux bleach effect. Next, I stamped and embossed the sentiment, framing with the coffee ring stamp (embossed in white.) Finally I stamped and embossed the dragonflies, circling around.



The outer panels began the same way, but I then stamped and embossed the ink splats ramdomly over them.




                



Thanks for stopping by, don’t forget to check out the links below, and come and join in the contests in our Facebook group:

Go Where Your Dreams Take You

Hi there! We have a stunning card from Jane Tyrrell to share with you next today!

Over to Jane…

 

Wow what amazing weather we enjoyed last weekend.

I have been watching the bulbs sprouting in my pots and my tulips are looking great…
the first to bloom was this lovely mellow yellow variety.




 

My lovely tulips inspired me to go for something cheerful and bright for my Monday Design team inspiration piece for Visible Image today.

I got out one of my favourite sentiments from the: 


and used the middle and small sized dragonflies from the:

 

 

 I put a circle mask into the centre of my card and repeat stamped the dragonflies using different yellow and oranges from my Distress inks.

 

 




 

You can just make it out in the bottom right larger dragonfly above that I added a wink of stella glitter to the wings.

 


I black embossed some extra dragonflies on some inky card and then fussy cut them out.



I added a wink of Stella glitter and then Glossy Accents for lots of shine and shimmer.




 

Then it was time to put my card together.

 


It was very hard to photograph as it is so sparkly in real life!

Bye for now,

Jane x



Wow what a stunner! Gorgeous design and the dragonflies look wonderful. Thank you Jane ♡

Live In The Moment

Good morning, afternoon or evening! Wow this week is going quickly!

Teresa Morgan is here to inspire you on the blog today with a fantastic mixed media project…



Good Morning!! Have you been enjoying the new release previews?? The DT have and we can’t wait to get our hands on them to start creating some inspirational samples for you all!! For now we are contenting ourselves by playing with our existing stash…this week I have a mixed media journal page to share – I have lots of step by step photos to help you through the creative process, hope you enjoy it!



2017-01-19 Visible Image - stamps - dragonfly - live in the moment - Teresa Morgan


I started by Mod Podging some book page and corrugated card to my background piece of cardstock:


I added some lace and mesh before painting a layer of gesso to blend it all in and prepare for ink/paint:


Sprays are so easy to use:


Some are misted over the page, others I tapped in blobs to create more visual interest:


Let this dry… and work on the tag. I stamped the music score and blended inks around the edge:


The dragonfly is stamped with Archival ink and coloured with the Dylusions and Cosmic Shimmer sprays:


Back to the main piece – I added some stencil detail with black modelling paste:


The sentiment is embossed with black powder and highlights added with a white gel pen:


You can see some of the pretty gold shimmer here too:


I love all the texture details:


Little doodled detail:


Even the lace picks up the sparkle and shimmer:


Some details added with a white gel pen and black fineliner complete this page….
thanks for sticking through all the pictures, I hope that they help explain how I build this type of project!!





Stamps Used:

Dragonflies – Visible Image

Hello there! We have more fabulous inspiration to share with you here on the blog today.

Over to Dot Leathbridge…


I’ve been having fun with the new dragonflies from Visible Image!


As there are now new smaller ones, the set is so versatile.



visible-image-live-in-the-moment-dragonfly-stamp-dot-leathbridge


This card uses the acrylic block technique as a background with some dragonflies stamped and embossed with white embossing powder.


The ink used is Color Burst. I love the intense colour that this product has!


The words are also stamped with the same ink.


After seeing/reading somewhere that you can spray your stamp lightly with water and mix colour onto the stamp with your finger, I decided to give it a go with the words. No different to what you do on the acrylic block…just using a stamp instead.
The multi-tones that came out on the words was amazing!!! And as long as you don’t have it too wet, then the words are quite crisp.

The stamp set used was:

visible-image-live-in-the-moment-dragonfly-col-stamp-set


This is my final DT make for this year for Visible Image.
I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas.
Take care!
Dot


Fabulous effects here Dot! Beautiful card ♡

Monday Inspiration Part 1 @ Visible Image

Good Morning! Hope you had a great weekend 🙂

This coming week is packed full of gorgeous inspiration created with our NEW stamps, leading up to our show on Create and Craft TV on Sunday at 10am… Valentine’s day… a perfect day to spread some Visible Image LOVE! ♡ ♡ ♡ And we know you will love not only the products on the show but the amazing demo’s Mark and Pauline have planned! We can’t wait!!!

Today we have 2 awesome projects here on the blog. First up is our US Design Team member Kim Johnny with her very first Monolith…



Today I am so excited to share my first project made with the awesome new products by Visible Image!! Yay!

As part of the design  team, I was very grateful to be given some of the new MDF “Monoliths” and new stamps to play and share today. The Monoliths and Dragonfly “Live in the Moment” are available for pre-order now!

This play was lots of fun and I really tried to use everything I love in making it!



Visible Image stamps - Live In The Moment - Dragonfly stamp - Kim Johnny


The Monolith is a wonderful size and is designed to work with the stamps perfectly. It is 17cm x 10cm. About 6 inches by 4 inches and a sturdy 3mm thick, laser cut and smooth. And I know it’s weird, but the wood smells good, too. Yeah I know weird but I love the smell of pencils and wood 🙂
I created the background with my DecoArt Blogger stash. Yummy DecoArt Crackle Paste, Fluid Acrylics and Antiquing Cream.



Visible Image stamps - Live In The Moment - Dragonfly stamp - Kim Johnny 2


The flip side is collaged with mat medium and DecoArt Fluid Acrylics. It is edged in the DA Fluid Acrylic Gold, love the shine it has.

Everything is heat embossed because I love embossing and dragonflies. So I had to combine all the things I love in this project. It makes them shine 🙂 I used Ranger Extra Fine Black and Recollections Bronze powders.


Visible Image social media links:


Have a great day!
~kim


Stunning work Kim! Both sides are awesome.. thank you ♡


We will be back later today with a fantastic card by Kim Bacon featuring another of our awesome NEW stamp sets!


Have a good Monday 🙂 We have a very busy day ahead!!! SO many stamps to cut and package!

Moments in Blue – Visible Image Stamps

Hello! Thanks for visiting our blog today 🙂

We have some fabulous inspiration for you this evening, so let’s get started!

Over to Dot Leathbridge, our Australian DT member…


New Stamps, New Products!


It is all happening at Visible Image at the moment…


with lots and lots of new stamps (yummy)
and something else altogether completely new ~ MONOLITHS.


Monoliths are MDF boards which come with a stand.
You can work on both sides.
~ and that is double the fun!!!


You can even use them as a kind of mood board ~ so either side reflects a different feeling…there are soooo many possibilites…


They are perfect for anything mixed media.
And they come in packs of 5.


Oh, and not so big that you can’t use your stamps on it,
in fact…they are specifically designed for our stamps!



So here is my first MONOLITH…



Visible Image stamps - MDF Monolith - Live IN The Moment - Dragonfly - Dot Leathbridge


After I did this I then did the other side ~
and forgot to take a pic.  Sorry about that.



Stamps Used:
Live In The Moment (new ~ & available for pre-order)


This side was sprayed with some mica’s from Finnabair,
and the other side was dribbled with some alcohol inks…in similar colours.
I wanted it to be similar, but different – if that makes sense.


The butterflies were stamped onto tissue paper and then applied.


 To finish, I decided to paint around the base and edges with some black gesso…
ooops, sorry, I didn’t take that pic either…



Visible Image will be on Create & Craft this Valentine’s Day
(10am) for those who would like to see Mark and Pauline play with the new products.
I still haven’t got around to blowing ink around through a Bic pen yet after the last show!
It is on my to-do list though.


It is absolutely awesome to be able to see what people look like and hear the sound of their voices…
it makes the world that bit smaller I think.

  • SO, new stamps (pre-ordering is under way)
  • new MDF boards
  • Create and Craft on TV (Feb 14th, 10am)
  • and the UK Trade Show (end of Feb)

~ are all things happening with Visible Image over the next few weeks! Busy times!!!

And it’s so exciting to be a part of it all.


Enjoy! 

Dot



This is absolutely stunning Dot.. the colours and texture are really beautiful ♡ Thank you!


We will be back soon with Shilpa’s Visible Image debut! And an awesome card from Teresa too 🙂

See you soon!
